I tune down to D scale. These work perfectly. I played around with different sets until I got these, and then the search was over. Even tone great match for tuning down. Used D'Addarios tension chart to pick these. I would not use these if playing regular scale. They're modifications you may have to make on the nut. Very big sound, and they last a long time, even longer if you use something like "ghs fast fret" after playing.

I play unplugged acoustic archtop with a big band. These strings are loud, very musical, and they do not break under the heavy attack necessary for swing music rhythm playing. Love 'em!

"In 1974, D'Addario pioneered the use of phosphor bronze wire for the winding of acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings were an instant and enduring success. A more costly alloy, phosphor bronze was widely known as a durable, long-lasting material used in machine bushings and bearings. After months of searching, a wire company was located that agreed to make sample wires for testing on music strings. The results made history. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings are bright sounding and retain their brilliance longer than other bronze and brass alloys.

Round wound phosphors are available in 6 different gauges for 6 string guitar, 3 gauges for 12 string, and 4 gauges in the Flat Tops series. Flat Tops are round wound phosphor bronze strings that are lightly polished to reduce finger noise and fret wear, and are an excellent choice for noise-fee recording. Phosphor Bronze strings are available in both environmental and standard packaging."
